I worked at TIAA full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Great benefits... good health care and plenty of vacation. Good pay for someone starting out in the industry.

Cons

Products are a nightmare to deal with and explain to clients. This place is also a technology dinosaur. Limited growth opportunities. It's not unusual to be in competition for a position with someone who has been with the company for 10+ years.

Advice to Management

Straighten out your plan rules and antiquated technology.

    Pros

    The compensation was fair, and there seems to be a true commitment to promoting work/life balance. People who have worked here are knowledgeable (but not to be confused with passionate) about what they do. They offer an EXCELLENT retirement benefits package.

    Cons

    There is an extremely "old-school" style of management that I found hierachical and exclusive. This means that they are not necessarily open to finding out what employees want/need. They assume they know it already. Progress on projects was always very slow and reactive, instead of progressive. The reputation of being a grandfatherly company comes from its slow pace and lack of young and/or dynamic people. I am not sure if they have ever fully recovered from reputational issues.The last I heard since I left, is that they are STILL working on becoming a recognizable brand and striving to compete with other financial services companies.

    Advice to Management

    Leave the ivory tower every once in a while and truly see/hear your employees. Promote people who work hard, and build a stronger engagement culture (particularly in the NYC office). People often seem bored/overwhelmed/drained...
